so glad i saw this new feat on my mobile while mobile in a three hour car ride from PA today! When did this get added?!
"if you wanna make it, make it happen"
Words start to sound funny in your head. You feel cheesy. I'd make an awesome life coach. I'm so making it happen : )

Does this have to be in one sitting? Or can we do it over time? Due to some upcoming, and very sudden, changes, I have been repeating a mantra over and over again... all day, and especially when commuting: "I have no idea where my future will lead me, but I can't wait to find out."

I've been chanting that for about 3 weeks now. So if it can be done over time, then most certainly feat accompli!

Huge props for Ssatin's mantra. It's like Oliver was channelling Ssatin with this feat. For me, the mantra did not come so easily, so I merged a couple of Wake Up Calls: "Fun Is Good. Suffering Is Optional." I just had to be mindful to not transpose the two. Accomplished on a 40 minute walk to/from Walgreens to p.u. geriatric care for my old cat. I like the way you set up a commuter feat for a holiday wknd, Labor Day, no less.

When running the the YAI 5K in Central Park I was silently repeating "Om Mane Padme Om". I had one of the best results of my life, coming in 32/720 and second in my age category.
